Story

The Dream Academy tried to do something different in the 80s. Instead of relying on synthesizers, they went "old school" and added classical elements to their haunting ballad which became their only US hit (reaching #7 on the Billboard charts in 1986). Their uniqueness ultimately worked against them, but their debut self-titled album has a timeless quality to it and is as enjoyable to listen to now as it was then.
